A Prayer of Brother Lawrence

Brother Lawrence.jpg

My God, you are always close to me. In obedience to you, I must now apply myself to outward things. Yet, as I do, I pray that you will give me the grace of your presence. And to this end I ask that you will assist my work, receive its fruits as an offering to you, and all the while direct all my affections to you.

By Brother Lawrence, Carmelite monk and author of Practicing the Presence of God.
